Spring has now officially arrived (Hurrah!),the temperature is getting warmer, skin is starting to be let out on show and the sunglasses are at the ready. Cue an endless supply of photographs of flowers and having to be physically detached from my beloved summer dresses. Just the way I like it.
Over the weekend, me and my boyfriend decided to make our way up to Nottingham to see his brother and family. With a two hour drive a head of us, I was sent on a mission to retrieve some of the best pop classics and 90's/early 00's music, let's just say there was a lot of Buster, Britney and Blackstreet being played on repeat. We stayed overnight, explored the city and had a lovely meal with his family the next day. Even though the Easter shopping madness definitely made it's way into all of the shopping centres, I managed to pick up a few beauty products and even some clothes all the way. Summer clothes? Not exactly, more light knitwear. We headed back home on Sunday, where even though I was sad to leave Nottingham, a city I only get to visit briefly once or twice a month, I was glad to be coming home to sunny weather.
I left bank holiday Monday for photography. I am currently studying landscape photography as a topic for my A-level and even though I feel like I'm constantly here, there and everywhere, I have managed to go to some extraordinary places over the past few months, the French alps and the peak district to name only a few. Me and the boyfriend took a trip to some local gardens due to my ever growing obsession with nature and flower photography. I have been putting off teaching my boyfriend how to take a decent photograph for some time, my impatience and his lack of concentration was never going to be a good match, but I put my faith in him and let him loose with my camera. Cue lots of unflattering angles and unfocused shots, but for a first timer he actually got a couple of good photographs.
Due to not going to the cinema in a very long time (two months is a long time for a cinema fanatic like me), we overcompensated by going to the cinema twice in three days. We saw both Go Hard and The Duff, even though neither of them blew our socks off, I did enjoy have a Tango Ice Blast in one hand and nachos in the other.
What did you do with your bank holiday weekend?
